The system of EIA legislation is based on the following legislation: the Law of Environment (Law Nº 1333), Regulation of Prevention and Environmental Control (DS No. 24176 from 1995, amended in 2018 by DS 3549, and again amended by DS 3856 in 2019), the regulation of environmental management (DS No. 24176 from 1995) and sectoral environmental regulations. The EIA system is implemented by the Ministry of Environment and Water, sectoral environmental units for each corresponding Ministry, and environmental units of the local governments in the nine departments. The SEA implementation is awaiting the approval of the Strategic Environmental Assessment Regulation (not yet approved in 2018).
